    The usual suite of benchmarks - no games on this one though. As expected, Vega 64 slots between 1080 & Ti. Nice GPU advances we've had over the past few years!

    Would've been interesting to see how d700 measures up in multi-GPU aware apps. I'm guessing upper mid-pack, between 1070 & 1080.

    Except the results show that the Nvidia web drivers are bad compared to Windows versions.but we already know that since years.

    Fixed that for you. Apple implements the OpenCL framework and the vendors implement a backend, while on Windows the vendors implement everything themselves.

    The Metal scores are more interesting. Apple is actually supporting Metal, and Metal let's you bypass the front end similar to OpenCL 2.

    And Vega's Metal scores are not great. Seems specific to the Vega drivers though, as the 580 and 480 scores hold where you would expect them to be roughly.
